B.C. files constitutional challenge of Alberta’s fuel restriction law

Em Cassidy

Moreover the wording of the Act insisted that the motivation was (as the title had it) "preserving Canada's economic prosperity" and (as the preamble had it) "maximizing value of Alberta's natural energy resources".

Premier John Horgan says Rachel Notley's refusal to take part hasn't kept him and other western leaders from having good discussions about national pharmacare and the legalization of marijuana.

Premier Scott Moe wants the federal government to "take up residence" in B.C.to get Kinder Morgan's Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project built.

Alberta responded with a boycott of B.C. wine.

With that deadline looming, B.C. business leaders flew to Edmonton last Thursday to show their backing for the project, which would almost triple the flow of diluted bitumen from the Alberta oilsands and increase tanker traffic sevenfold.

Premier Notley initially praised the Horgan move as a step in the right direction ("stepping back from the brink and abiding by the law") and suspended her wine boycott.

Kinder Morgan has halted non-essential construction on the pipeline and set a May 31 deadline to decide whether it will proceed with the expansion. "A company can not resolve differences between governments".

Samsung ordered to pay $539m for copying iPhone features
Apple had argued it was owed more than $ 1 billion while Samsung contended the $ 399 million should be slashed to $28 million. While this may have been a "big win" for Apple, there have been instances where the company has lost court cases in the past.

The British Columbia government filed a constitutional lawsuit Tuesday countering an Alberta government bill that would limit fuel being sent to the province. Alberta has 20 days to file a statement of defence. "They've made some decisions, and we're going to inflict pain on those economic decisions so they understand what they've done".

Notley noted that B.C. would be able to source oil and gas from Washington, but it would drive up prices for consumers.

"A significant disruption in the supply of gasoline, diesel, and crude oil from Alberta to British Columbia would cause British Columbia irreparable harm", the statement of claim reads.

"We believe it would be reckless in the extreme and therefore highly unlikely that Alberta will actually attempt to use the powers they granted themselves in Bill 12", he told a conference call. His government maintains that increased pipeline capacity and tanker traffic moving diluted bitumen pose a risk to the coast.

Red Sox designate slugger Hanley Ramirez for assignment
While Boston continues to grumble, it turns out that New York Yankees fans are celebrating Ramirez's departure from Boston. Ramirez could file a grievance saying the Red Sox tried to keep him from reaching his $22 million vesting option.

Deputy premier Sarah Hoffman wanted the final letter from the Western Premiers' Conference in Yellowknife to express support for the Trans Mountain pipeline from every premier at the table, but that didn't happen.

He pointed out that the richer the deal, the longer the list of potential replacements for Kinder Morgan, which could include pension or private equity funds. "We will use every tool in our tool box to stop the project from going ahead".

Saskatchewan's premier says he remains "cautiously optimistic" the project will go forward, but he continues to have concerns over how the federal government is engaging with Horgan.
